PLANNING FOR STUDENT SUCCESS:
Strategic Plan Objectives on Target; School Transformation Planning Continues

District Reorganization Update

Superintendent Eric Andrew provided an overview of the actions taken and those that are planned regarding transforming Campbell Middle School (CMS) into a PreK-8 school.

Key Points:

  1. Transformation model and guiding principles: Superintendent Andrew explained that the Transformation Team will be considering the three approaches for transition that the Board discussed at the December Study Session, and that the group would be drafting some Guiding Principles for Board approval.
  2. Placement of incoming CMS 5th and 6th graders: Dr. Andrew also noted that plans are underway for having incoming 5th graders be able to remain at the elementary school, and he asked for the Board’s direction regarding placement of the 6th graders in the CMS attendance area.
    The Board agreed that CMS should not take new 5th graders, but that incoming 6th graders should be allowed to attend CMS through grade 8.
  3. Facility needs: Deputy Superintendent Jim Crawford described the anticipated modifications needed at some school campuses to accommodate the increase in 5th and 6th graders during and beyond the transformation. Estimated increases in the number of classrooms needed at Monroe, Rolling Hills, Blackford, Castlemont, Capri and Rosemary schools are based on available enrollment projections.
  4. Transformation Team: Many of the members of the newly formed Transformation Team were present and were introduced. Members represent elementary and middle school teachers, parents, support staff and neighbors. The Team had its first meeting on January 12th.
    Transformation Facilitator Derek Mitchell explained that the first steps for the Team are to determine the best ways to communicate and work together, define what success would look like, and identify key decisions needed before presenting a proposal to the Board in June 2017. The Transformation Team’s next meeting is currently scheduled for February 2.

  

Strategic Plan Progress

Superintendent Eric Andrew reported that work on the five objectives aimed at achieving the district’s Strategic Goals is going well.

Since the last Board update:

  • Completed Objectives:
    - Create a Special Education Professional Development Training Series and provide at least one training in order to develop and retain special education teachers
  • Revised Deadlines:
    - Create and present to the Board a plan for creating a “Parent University.”
    - Proposed plan for implementation of the K-8 school at Campbell Middle School
    - Strategies to improve employees’ work experience

Letter from Superintendent Andrew Outlines Next Steps in Campbell Middle School Transformation

Dear Parents,

Campbell Union School District continuously seeks to ensure that every Campbell school is a place where students, parents, and staff thrive. As outlined in our mission and vision statements, we constantly strive to provide programs that will meet and exceed the needs of our students, staff and community.

Providing our students and community with education options and proven, innovative programs is accomplished through the focused efforts of all of our stakeholders. We begin by researching and observing “best practices” in schools, studying current trends in education, and craft programs that enable us to educate our students to their highest potential and ensure that they are prepared to succeed.

My purpose in writing to you today is to share what our next steps will be in meeting the goals outlined above. We have decided to transform Campbell Middle School into a preschool through eighth grade site. We are excited to provide our students, staff, and families with another research-proven model that will enhance the learning opportunities for our students.

We will officially launch the transformation planning process this month. The transformation will have an impact on all sites, although the specific impact will not be known until the plan is fully developed. I will schedule a meeting at all sites in the next few weeks to discuss the process and respond to questions. (Please see below.) Other site and district meetings will be scheduled throughout the year.

The Transformation Team has been selected. This team will develop the implementation plan for the new site. The selected team members represent teachers, administrators, parents, community members, and an education consultant. The Team will submit a comprehensive plan of action to the Board in June 2017.

Our Open Enrollment process will change this year as we prepare for the transformation. Our current 4th grade students from Capri, Castlemont, Blackford, and Rosemary that generally attend CMS will remain at their elementary school sites next year. * There may be a lottery for the few middle school slots available at Rolling Hills and Monroe; however that decision has not been decided.

We will provide a mechanism to communicate with district officials throughout the process. There will be an update provided to the Board at each regularly scheduled Board Meeting. We will provide notes on the Board Meeting discussion items shortly after each meeting. I encourage you to follow our progress through the communication channel (website, school site, community and board meetings, surveys, etc.) that best meets the needs of your family.

The transformation planning and implementation process will have anticipated and unanticipated challenges along the way. We will keep you informed of the progress and any changes to the process in a timely manner. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and input as we add another school model for the students and families of the Campbell Union School District.

Together we are making a difference for students, and I personally want to thank all of you who are working so hard to provide an "Education Beyond the Expected" for our children.

Sincerely,

Eric Andrew, Ed.D., Superintendent
